CMC Connect - UK

Associate Medical Writer

Love science? Communicate it!

CMC CONNECT is a leading global medical communications agency established 25 years ago, and is part of McCann Health. We have offices in Macclesfield, Manchester and Glasgow in the UK, and Hackensack, NJ and Radnor, PA in the USA. We work on some of the most innovative global healthcare products from early development through to post-launch, and we are extremely proud of the work we produce for our clients through our talented individuals and hardworking, high-energy, collaborative teams.

We are currently seeking to hire intelligent, highly motivated and enthusiastic Associate Medical Writers, to be based in either our Glasgow or Manchester offices to support our continued success.

Our Associate Medical Writers work on a variety of medical communications projects, from print and online media, spanning publications to international scientific meetings of all types. Successful candidates will receive comprehensive training and develop the ability to produce a range of high-quality written communications by objectively evaluating scientific literature, working to the client’s brief, writing for the target audience and publication medium, and incorporating design and digital functionality as appropriate.

Medical communications is a highly rewarding career – through developing accurate and engaging projects communicating the scientific evidence, we work on cutting-edge medicines that can really make a difference to patients’ lives. We work with our colleagues across our different office sites, to achieve shared goals and succeed in delighting our clients with excellent customer service.

We are looking to recruit enthusiastic individuals with clever and curious minds, with a life science degree (preferably a PhD) together with a natural aptitude for writing. Candidates must have excellent verbal and written communication skills and be able to demonstrate confidence in liaising with others. The successful recruits will be coached in medical writing and will enter our structured career development programme.

We offer careers, not just jobs, continuously fulfilling our commitment to invest in our team members and meet their professional development needs. We build roles around the strengths and aspirations of our staff, and in doing so have become an employer of choice for over 150 employees worldwide.

The variety of clients with whom we work allows our staff to broaden their experience through multiple exciting project types. We are exceptionally proud of our company culture; we support and respect our team members and empower individuals to learn, grow and develop, all in a free-thinking environment where innovation and new ideas are encouraged and embraced.

We offer an excellent remuneration and benefits package, and provide long-term career choice and development that supports and encourages our editorial staff to progress their medical writing career. Our highly skilled teams reflect our continuing commitment to being an employer of choice as well as a provider of choice.
